When ships discharge their bilge water the maximum level of hydrocarbons in the water is regulated by various Environmental Protection Agencies, for example there is a limit of 15ppm enforced by the IMO (International Maritime Organisation) in all international waters. Companies breaching these limits are liable to significant fines. Further regulations have been introduced to control the use of bunker fuels. The Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) of the IMO has approved proposed amendments to the MARPOL Annex VI regulations to reduce harmful emissions from ships.

With vessels, such as MS Harmony of the Seas or MSC Oscar, getting bigger and bigger, pollutions issues are becoming more relevant daily as they cruise along our coasts. Regulations are becoming tighter to reduce the NOx, SOx and Green House Gases emissions. More information can be found on the IMO Marine Engine Regulations. Our instruments have been designed to help local maritime authorities monitor such gases (NOx, SOx, GHG) and to help designing fuel with lower sulfur content.
